Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling for October 17, 2013
Enjoy this Classic Tom the Dancing Bug Every Thursday Panels from the annals of the Tom the Dancing Bug archive Check back every Friday for a fresh, brand new Tom the Dancing Bug! Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling If Damselflies Could Talk... This Would Be Their Story Damselfly: That maniac damselfly may think this is its territory, but this is MY territory, it's BEEN my territory for five days, and it always WILL be my territory. Damselfly: That was my territory six days ago, and I will regain it or die trying. There is no greater cause than the pursuit of JUSTICE -- and that is my war for the rotting stump. Damselfly: Its constant, unprovoked attacks on me are morally egregious! I think it's not even damselfly! It's some kind of sub-damselfly creature! Damselfly: I must make it know that I will NEVER give up! Any sign of weakness will give it encouragement that it will keep the territory! Damselfly: I must defend myself from its unjustified assaults with great force! My connection to this rotting stump is deep and spiritual. Damselfly: O, rounded rock! O, cluster of four marsh weeds! How my thorax aches for you! There will be no peace until I perch on the stump again! NEXT WEEK IN "If Red-Winged Blackbirds Could Talk..." Can there be peace in the mid-east region of the forest, by the creek and west of the two great birch trees? Bird: The socio-political morality of my use of violence is self-evident! That acre and a half of woodland is mine!
